'A Trip to the Moon' Review: Why Director George Melies is a Genius
I am a sucker for old silent movies. It is like taking a time machine to a different era of film making. If one went through all the films by each decade, starting as early as the 1920s, one could witness the history of cinema unfold before their eyes.

I didn't even know movies were being made that early in time. In fact, the invention of what we know today as the "moving picture," came around the late 1800s. So upon discovering how old this particular silent film is, I, of course, had to watch it.

Then we have artists like J2 and Hidden Citizens who turn these pop hits into an epic score worthy of movie soundtracks. Classics such as "Lean on Me" or Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror"(which can be heard in the video above) are reproduced into what is called an epic trailer version.

Variety reported that the movie has entered in the Oscar ring for several categories, including Best Picture and Best Director for Patty Jenkins. Comic book movies are usually (and unfairly) over looked at the Oscars, but Wonder Woman may have a chance this time.

Game Of Thrones: These Board Games Should Have Their Own Movies
Board games bring people together and are fun to play. Part of the reason they're so fun is that they come with a simple narrative. For instance, Clue is a murder mystery set in an eerie mansion.
